Program Description
This program prepares students for skilled positions as an entry-level manual machinist. Manual machinists are individuals who are able to set up and operate a variety of machine tools to produce precision parts and instruments. Students will learn through hands-on projects and computer-assisted instruction the basic skills needed to fabricate, modify, or repair mechanical and/or precision instruments. Employment may also include fabricating and modifying parts to make or repair machine tools or maintain industrial machines, applying knowledge of mechanics, shop mathematics, metal properties, layout, and machining procedures.

Instruction is competency-based. This means that students will learn through hands-on practice the skills needed for entry-level employment. Students will begin the program by learning the safety requirements needed on the job. Students will learn to operate lathes, mills, and grinders, all the while learning to assess the quality of the projects they produce.
